they got an eye opener about 900 miles east of moscow this morning. it was a skyful of biblical proportions, a sky full of fire and brimstone. you've got to see it to appreciate it. this is morning. a cold dawn sky and then this. some of the noise came from sonic booms caused by meteor fragments traveling faster than the speed of sound. but other explosions seem to have come from impact. or you're drivinging to work and you see this. or you're teaching in your classroom and -- or hearing the commotion, you look out your apartment window and then -- the onslaught caused damage to widespread buildings and some
7:05 am
people. several hundred were hurt many due to flying glass and debris. there are several theories as to what happened. a russian emergency ministry spokesperson said there had been a meteor shower. others said this was all the result of one big meteor. one witness was a canadian hockey player now living in russia and he said he never saw anything like this on the rink. >> i was terrified. i had just hit the snooze bar on my iphone for another nine minutes of sleep and all of a sudden, you know i fell back asleep and i hear this loud bang. i live in a 24-story building on the 23rd floor, and all of a sudden i look up and the lights are shaking and i hear car alarms going off. it was just incredible. >> it's one of those places where weird stuff happens. it was a major weapons manufacturing center in the old

7:10 am
rescue. well he and other passengers finally made it to new orleans but many of those buses didn't arrive until 2:00 in the morning and their journey is not over. they still have to take charter flights to houston today. other people -- a few had their relatives pick them up in mow bee, and some of them went to hotels and checked in just to get some rest. they'll probably figure out where they'll go and how they're going to do it today. back to you. >> anna werner thanks. the nightmare is orever for the passengers but might just be starting for carnival. peter greenberg is with us this morning. first let me ask you about this ceo of carnival. some critics say he's not done enough. will he take some blame for the this? >> he probably will. mickey arison he went to a
7:11 am
basketball game the other night. the ceo kept a low profile after the "costa concordia" more than a year ago. it will be interesting to see how much he'll take from this. >> keep in mind you've got over 3,000 passengers on a ship. many have cell phones. they're citizen journalists. they're going to begin to share those photos worldwide. >> tell us what the passengers' rights are in this situation. >> remember, when it came into port, it was not only meant by the u.s. public health service, coast guard, a few ohfficialofficials, there may be lawyers on board. they have to prove those damages. obviously their trip was interrupted, canceled. they didn't get what they wanted. carnival attempted to give them a full refund of everything they did and what they bought except for the gift shop and the casino and just yesterday they threw in an additional $500 and free
7:12 am
cruise ship going ahead. they're trying to do what they can. remember that doing all that actually resulted in chartering 50, 60 buses, one of which broke down in new orleans. it was not a pleasant trip certainly even when they got to shore. >> it certainly added insult to injury with the bus breaking down peter. do you think this affected the cruise industry? >> carnival took a hit last year with the "costa concordia." carnival is the largest cruise line in the world, 75 ship many different brands. what you're going to see are serious discounts in the next two to three months. you know what? the cruise ship industry is in harnltly safe. nobody's died on the ship.
7:13 am
if you see a big discount like that, you might want to take it. >> discounts notwithstanding, i can't imagine anybody taking advantage of that. >> i know. people are scared elderly people especially. >> and it's encouraging that the crew did everything they tried to do to make the five numbing days at sea more barable. >> i'm sure they had a tough time taking care of all the passengers. to another potential catastrophe, we're two weeks away from massive spending cuts. and congress guess what? they're taking next week off. they're leaving the fate of chuck hagel hanging in the balance. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, norah. they're going to have to deal with those cuts right away. they're very steep. almost no one around here likes them, they were never supposed to happen, and yet they're leaving town. >> the halls of congress cleared out quickly last night.

7:15 am
>> we need a secretaryf defense on the job. no one, no one knows, especially any united states senator, what foreign challenge will face this country perhaps in the next ten day days. >> reporter: republicans say they still have questions about his policies income and qualifications for the job so in a rare move they filibustered him for the job. >> this time we can and must do better. >> reporter: republicans say they probably will allow haig toll get confirmed when they come back from recess. democrats say if that's the case whierks not just confirm him now? this was supposed to be panetta's last day on the job but he said he'll stick around until a new secretary jenof defense

welcome back to "cbs this morning." coming up in this half hour reverse mortgage might sound like a solution to your money needs but they're also called risky. we'll show you why changes are coming. we'll talk with sally field and how she could win an academy award and we'll talk about the time she gave one of the most memorable speeches in oscar history. >> i remember that. right now we show you this morning's headlines. "the washington post" talks about growing disasters can
8:31 am
devastate crops and bridges. they say that could lead to heavy losses waste, and flood. "the san francisco chronicle" says even moderate alcohol use can substantially increase the risk of cancer. blame booze for about 3% of cancer deaths in this country each year. a third of those deaths come from people who have an average of 1 1/2 drinks day. and the "new york post" says tiffany & co. is suing costco. tiffany is complaining costco has sold knock-offs of its rings for years. it's demanding $2,000 for each infringement plus triple the profits for selling the rings. and "usa today" says florida has won the online beach survey chosen as the best beach town. it's all based on location, location location. clearwater is close to downtown the airport and an hour and a
8:32 am
half from orlando. reverse mortgages are not right for everyone and the government is announcing changes. rebecca jarvis is here. she just conducted a class 101 for me. >> that's what the green room is all about, j. bchlt. >> exactly. what are reverse mortgages in simple temps. >> in this mortgage it pays you and it becomes due with interest when you move out or pass away. they're only eligible for people 62 or older. what everyone has to keep in mind, you still have to pay insurance and taxes on your house when you're living in it and you have a reverse mortgage. >> why would this be a good idea? >> some people see it as a good idea because it's an opportunity to take money out. if you're in retirement and you need extra money to pay the medical bills, people see it as an option but it doesn't necessarily apply for everyone and it can be very costly. the fees are one of the biggest issues with these mortgages because they're very high.
8:33 am
you could pay as much as $12,000 in fees on a 300,000 dlrt mortgage and when all is said and done that's a lot of money. so you have to balance the amount of money you're paying for it with the amount you're getting for it. >> i hear the government has new rules. there's always rules with the government. what are they and will they protect? >> the new rules are part of the solution, but the customer at the end of the day, just like with anything, has to protect themselves. these rules are ball the government backs up the mortgages. $2.8 billion were lost on these mortgages last year. that's a huge amount of money. one in ten of them were in default last year. boroughs put their nest egg at risk. you have to keep that in mind. ultimately the nest egg is their home. it goes back to the bank or is sold when you pass away or move out. sometimes they're evicted because they don't put their name on it. if you enter into a risk loan
8:34 am
both should be on it. >> you see various people endorsing these. what i've heard is sometimes seniors get taken advantage of in these situations. >> that's the unfortunate thing. in all situations where you're dealing with a lender, keep in mind their objective is to make money, so you have to keep that in mind. you also have to make sure you're staying in your home for three years plus to make it really counseled for you and choose that lender wise i. >> lerebecca jarvis thank you. and sally field landed her first movie more than half a century ago. we talk about her role as first lady to the nation's 16th president. >> do you hope you win the oscar? >> i don't care. >> really? >> no, no no. i'd be a lie yar if i said it wouldn't be thrilling. >> reporter: thrilling because it's been 28 years since sally
8:35 am
field took home an oscar but her portrayal as mary todd lincoln at 66 shows she's still at the top of her game. >> i believe you when you say amending this will end -- >> she's ten years older than daniel day louis and mairry was ten years younger than lincoln. steven spielberg thought that was a problem. >> steven called you and said it might not be right. >> yeah. >> what did you do? >> i said call me. he call and said it just isn't going to work. >> despite that spielburg sent the footage to daniel day-lewis. >> he said do, you want the same hair and makeup people? i said hair and makeup people? finch a drink
8:36 am
for a drink? >> he said, oh no. daniel day-lewis is going to come in. >> she passed the test and she became first lady. >> what is it about mary that made you fight so hard? >> it is rare, really rare that a woman in her 60s or any woman, any actor, gets to play such a complicated royal. >> i'm going to send you to the madhouse. >> you do it. don't you threaten me. do it this time. lock me away. you'll have to i swear, if robert is killed. >> did you discover anything about yourself in mary todd lincoln? >> the actor brings the character toward them and they move toward the character, and somewhere you hope to merge and you don't know who's who anymore and what part is me and what part is her and she has changed me and i'm not really sure how.
8:37 am
i'm in some ways sort of afraid to find out. >> reporter: the most visible challenge was a physical one shelf gained 25 pounds for the role. >> they couldn't make the costume more bigger? >> no. it really showed in my face. you can't fake that. the whole point of acting and getting -- being as much this person as you can be is to not fake anything. >> she's been perfecting that approach as an actor throughout her career. she began at age 17 with her starg role as the tv's "gidget." her career soared with "the flying none" and took a serious turn in the '70s with her oscar-winning performance asnorma ray. anne hathaway paid tribute.

8:40 am
night winning both times. this year her role is up for best supporting actress and is facing off against four much younger women. >> range, substance, and intellect is what i took away from her. how does she impress you. >> oh, yeah. she's 66 so she's been alkting for nearly 50 years. she's down to earth and an incredible actress. >> she seems to me to be in a good place. if she doesn't, she'll be lrpt and if she does she'll enjoy the moment. >> it will focus the attention on mary todd lincoln and a lot of people say there would not be an abraham lincoln without a mary todd lincoln because she encouraged him in politics. >> and if you know you're right for it you've got to fight for it. they get an
